Phytocontrol Group


Located at the heart of Georges Besse II science park in Nîmes, in the south of France, the laboratory stretches over more than 4000 m² in an ultra-modern building certified ISO 14001 and equipped with the latest analytical technologies. The nearby laboratory dedicated to water analysis reinforces the Group's analytical expertise in order to work fully on water and food safety. The Nîmes site is supported in Rennes by a local laboratory: Phytocontrol Proxilab Bretagne, which provides water analysis and food microbiology. In Spain, in Barcelona, the SPM Laboratory provides routine analyses for customers in the region.

The Phytocontrol Group is a network of French and European regional agencies organised around a central laboratory. Each ensures Phytocontrol's proximity, follow-up and advice to its customers.

This dynamic is an essential link in the laboratory's overall quality policy.
